Congenital cutaneous candidiasis is an infrequent invasive fungal infection that usually appears in the first days of life. Extremely low birth weight infants are the most frequently affected. Classic presentation includes diffuse extensive erythematous rash with papules, plaques, pustules and vesicles, which later undergoes desquamation. Systemic dissemination is common in extremely low birth weight infants. Blood, urine and cerebrospinal fluid evaluation should be included in the initial…
Interleukin (IL) 17A plays a decisive role in anti-Candida host defense. Previous data demonstrated significantly increased IL-17A values in candidemic patients. We evaluated levels and time courses of IL-17A, and other cytokines suggested to be involved in Candida-specific immunity (IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-17F, IL-22, IL-23, interferon-γ, tumor necrosis factor-α, Pentraxin-related protein 3, transforming growth factor-β) in patients with invasive candidiasis (IC) compared to bacteremic patients…
CONCLUSIONS: Any conclusion drawn from this NMA should be taken with caution and recommend future clinical trials with the results.
CONCLUSIONS: Most hospitals in the United States, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Japan have adopted certain infection prevention practices. Clear opportunities for reducing HAI risk in hospitals exist across all 4 countries surveyed.
CONCLUSIONS: The Seegene® Allplex^(TM) Vaginitis assay has an excellent performance in the diagnosis of the BV and presence of Candida; while the results were good for trichomoniasis, the study was underpowered for this outcome.
CONCLUSIONS: Astodrimer 1% Gel, administered every second day for 16 weeks, was effective and superior to placebo for prevention of recurrent bacterial vaginosis in women with a history of recurrent BV, and was well-tolerated.
CONCLUSIONS: We have developed an assay for simultaneous quantification of 12 antimicrobial agents using a small sample volume of 50 μL with a short assay time of 7 min. Our novel method may contribute to simultaneous calculation of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters.
